Where to find vApp field in vRops

Trying to report on VMs and show their associated vApp. Can't find the vApp field in vRops.

Has the vApp been added to vRops or are there any plans to add it?

Say I get a vRops report that shows a VM pegged at 100% CPU.

I can report the ESX host and the associated cluster, but I can't find how to show the vApp the VM belongs to.

We can have multiple VMs with the same name on the same host but in different vApps. How do I generate a vRops report of the VM and the vApp it's associated with?

You may have to create a report with multiple metrics objects selected

This is one of the more annoying quality of life things i with vmware would work on. There are clearly a lot of relationships that exist between objects that you can see in the environment page but you cant add them to reports. Resource pools and vapps are one but also parent CDC, port group vm is attached to and so on so i feel your pain.

In your case you may need to create different custom groups for each vapp. Maybe allot of work
